"With victims strewn across twelve states, there seems to be no end to the terror of the serial killer known only as the "Highway Killer." Chosen seemingly at random, his victims are young and old, male and female, from all walks of life. The FBI has no leads. And bodies keep turning up coast to coast." "What the authorities can't know is that the killer is also a gifted healer, a psychiatrist who lures his victims into a false sense of security with his miraculous ability to spark instant intimacy and to understand their darkest emotional secrets. He is their confessor, but he is also their executioner.""Brilliant forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger thought he could trade the public spotlight for a quiet life with his newly adopted son. But now Clevenger is recruited by the FBI to help catch the Highway Killer. Forced back into the glare of the national media, Clevenger must descend into the twisted mind of a relentless killer while trying to keep his own rebellious adopted son from staring into a life of drugs and violence." "The case takes a bizarre twist when the Highway Killer writes to The New York Times, challenging Clevenger to heal him through an exchange of open letters published on the front page. Clevenger accepts. But as the Highway Killer confronts the demons that inhabit his own tortured mind, his brutality climbs to new heights." "No one can know whether Clevenger will ultimately exorcise those demons or if the Highway Killer's diabolical mind will explode in an ever-more gruesome frenzy of violence."--BOOK JACKET.
